Invasion

Eric L. Harry, Author Jove Books $7.99 (567p) ISBN 978-0-515-12842-0
Harry's most recent thriller (after Protect and Defend) presents a powerful portrait of modern-day politics gone wild. U.S. Republican President Bill Baker is thrown a curveball when China puts its plan of world dominance into action. After invading Asian, European and finally Caribbean territory, it's obvious that four thousand miles of ocean is not enough to keep North America safe from China. The siege begins, and Baker retaliates by declaring war on China. As if this staggering situation weren't enough, Harry juxtaposes this scenario with the personal implications raised by the presence of the president's patriotic teenage daughter, Stephie Roberts, in the U.S. Army. Problems arise when Stephie's mother (the president's ex-wife) insists that her daughter be removed from danger--though not before Stephie's relationship with young Chinese army Lieutenant Wu surfaces. Without indulging in techno-babble, Harry displays a remarkable grasp of infantry tactics and weapons, and his graphic descriptions of battles and sorties will entertain and intrigue. Questionable exaggerations notwithstanding, the book will satisfy those looking for a thrilling escape into the world of disasters waiting to happen. (Feb.)
